Event Overview

Warbirds & Classics Over Denver is all about honoring those who supported, flew and fought in the skies from the US and around the world – and also about recognizing those “Classic” aircraft beauties from 50 years or more ago.

Runway ModelsThe event is a “fun fly” of radio-controlled military aircraft reproductions from World War I to the present AND Classics from pre-1974.  Military aircraft include World War I bi-planes, World War II fighters and bombers, and 200 mph turbine-powered jet models from Desert Storm.  Classics include private and civilian aircraft such as Cessna, Piper, Taylorcraft and more.  Many of these reproductions took over 1000 hours to build and some with costs exceeding $20,000.

This event typically draws over 100 replica aircraft and over 80 Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) qualified pilots from around the U.S. – and LOTS of spectators!

Presented by Jefco Aermod’lers RC Club, the event is FREE for spectators. However, all entrants to Chatfield State Park must pay the  per car/per day admission fee or have a State Park Annual pass. RC pilots must be a current AMA member and have a FAA small UAS Certificate of Registration.
